Use systemd-localed?

As it was suggested in the discussion here on the devel list, we could
use the systemd-localed DBus service [1] to set keyboard layouts. I've
looked at it and tried some tests and here are the results:

1.) The main problem is, that this service allows to set only one
keyboard layout and is therefore not usable for us for setting multiple
X11 keyboard layouts.

2.) While it has a method for setting the virtual console keyboard
layout too, it provides us the same functionality as loadkeys command. I
see no reason for replacing loadkeys calling with DBus method
invocations. Once rhbz#837292 [2] gets resolved it would allow us to use
more keyboard layouts in the console, but for now I don't see any reason
to use it.

Comments are, of course, welcome.
